My PostOffice hollers at me for using staples to close the end of my brown bubblers.. SO today I have found a solution to close the ends.

I put the envelope on my sewing machine , and used the largest stitch to close the end.
Presto.........just like a bag of potatoes.
Neat and no complains.

Great Idea Dodge!!! I always use staples also, but my post office has never said anything about my heavy staple usage.

some post offices reject stampples because they can jam up their mail sorting machines, and can hurt people, I always put a strip of tape over the staples

Well here is the funny part.. Last year I got yelled at about it.

In February the same lady helped me close a brown bag ..She used the stapler.........I said nothing......
So yesterday I invented that method, being I had a large bag to go to Oklahoma....plants .. It worked very neatly........
Just helping others help themselves......They told me it ripped up the belts on the conveyers??????

Anyways ..............Use it folks......
FOr the love of my garden friends.
